Hey Everyone!

Hey guys, My name is Alice Gorton and I'm really excited to have the opportunity to write for Grousepark.com this season! I started skiing at Grouse Mountain when I was around 8 years old. I had no idea how to do it, I would just rip down the mountain and fall when I needed to stop. After that phase, I started snowboarding, I was 11 years old and I instantly fell in love with it. I am 16 now, and since then, Grouse has become like a second home to me. I have made some great friends through this sport and through grouse and together we have had some wonderful experiences.  This season, I have been lucky enough to have ridden Grouse Mountain, Seymour, Whistler and a mountain called Sunshine in Calgary. However, Grouse Mountain has always been the go to mountain for me, as I live in Richmond and have a very convenient sky train, sea bus and bus ride there, which is actually a lot shorter than it sounds.  Anyways, the game plan for this season is to have the best day ever, every day. I'll also keep you updated with whats going on in snowboarding, whats going on at Grouse Mountain and who's killing it. Don't be afraid to come up and say hi if you see me riding this season! It would make my day!
